How To Care For Your Lips In The Cold Weather

Lip Tint Steve Laurant

With it being the Galentine’s season of love (and smooching) it’s vital to keep your lips hydrated and smooth when having fun with your BFFs. The cold weather is our worst nightmare for drying out our lips. This, paired with nervously nibbling on your lips on a first date, does not create a good look.

We know there are so many balms and scrubs out there to choose from and it’s easy to get lost in what works for you. But don’t fret, we have found a variety of hero exfoliators, balms and masks to give your lips some love and leave them perfectly soft and protected.

GLAMGLOW Poutmud Fizzy Lip Exfoliating Treatment

Achieve kissable lips with the GLAMGLOW Poutmud Fizzy Lip Exfoliating Treatment, £16.20; a multi-action formula that works to energise and smooth the skin. With the help of Caribbean Cane Sugar, Hawaiian Sea Salt and Hibiscus Flower Powder, the exfoliator removes dead skin cells to leave lips polished. Plus, the delicious blend of Sweet Almond Oil, Guava and Lychee not only tastes amazing but also offers antioxidant benefits.


Steve Laurant Lip Tint

Featured in this month’s box, the Steve Laurant Lip Tint, £19, is not only a great moisturiser and hydrator but it’s perfect for adding highly pigmented colour to your lips both day and night. It’s rose gold, compact packaging is so on trend and easy to carry around in your bag wherever you go. An added bonus is that it’s cruelty free – spreading the love this month!

Lip Tint Burt’s Bees Honey Lip Balm Tube

This balm, £3.99, is a go to when your lips are dry or chapped to soften and instantly moisturise for the perfect pout. Burt’s Bees Honey Lip Balm is the brands most popular product. The beeswax seals in hydration alongside ingredients such as ultra-emollient lanolin, coconut and sunflower oils.

Created to suit each individual, you can choose between a vintage yellow tin or the recycled plastic tube if you prefer stick lip balms.

Glossier Balm Dotcom

We promise, it’s not just the name that’s won us over. The Glossier, ‘do everything’ Balm Dotcom skin salve, £10, is a hydrating, long-lasting, multipurpose balm that’s packed with antioxidants and natural emollients to repair dry skin. The dense, waxy texture stays in place to seal in moisture wherever it goes.

Available in six flavours: Original, Birthday, Rose, Cherry, Mint and Coconut, you can collect them all to find one that works for you AND sign up to have it delivered to you every month. So there really is no excuse for cringe-worthy lips. We’re pretty sure you’ll love them all!

LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask

Highly recommended, the LANEIGE’s lip sleeping mask, £15.12, is a fantastic solution.  It helps to achieve smoother, suppler lips overnight when you’ve been exposed to the cold during the day.

Apply a generous layer of this soothing mask at bedtime to reduce flakes so you can wake up to lips that feel refreshed, supple and soft. Including vitamin C and antioxidants, its Berry Mix offers a temptingly sweet combination of raspberry, strawberry, cranberry, and blueberry extracts to indulge anyone.
